AFAIK it isn't documented yet - whether or not it ever will be I don't
know. MPlayer (and MEncoder) can now use libavformat for demuxing,
though MEncoder cannot yet use it for muxing (*that* would be nice, but
it's probably not going to happen anytime soon, unless I get a bug up my
ass and a minor miracle in programming capability). As for enabling it,
you are correct - simply copy libavformat/ from the ffmpeg source tree
to the MPlayer source tree, and compile.
